Quick Update

Firstly I really want to thank everyone for their comment to my last post. I can totally relate to each and every one of you.

I know this is not an acceptable way of living for myself and the children. It has been going on for far too long and I can't do it anymore.

We sat the children down and had a good talk to them. They all told Steve how they are feeling and that they had been too scared to tell him the truth in the past. It broke my heart. Anyway it prompted Steve into making a phonecall and putting the wheels in place for counselling. I think we are on a waiting list which is typical!!

Things are still very strained between us because he still hasn't sat me down and tried talking. Like I said I'm sick of trying and things being ok for a couple of months and then it all happens again. He just can't communicate!!

Anyway I will wait until we can see the counsellor. I just can't face thinking about moving out or packing a house up before christmas.

He is going away on a bike rally this weekend and I think it is perfect timing. I just hope he can have a good think about things while he's away.

I really appreciate everything you have said. It's nothing I haven't thought a million times and I know this treatment is totally unacceptable but I just don't know how things are going to change.
Can people really change???

Anyway onto some good news. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I LOST 2.7 KGS THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!

Finally something to put a smile on my face.

Well done on the loss Tina, that's a great start.

Re your comment on my blog, I go to a 1 on 1 WW consultant so it's a personal meeting as such and not a group situation. I love it this way.

FANTASTIC LOSS TINA!!!! You must be very pleased about that, especially with so much going on in your household at the moment.

I wish I knew what to say to you about the situation with Steve - once again i'm reminded of how much I admire your parenting skills, what you did took a lot of courage and must have been so hard and I really hope that hearing the kids say that makes Steve realise how much he NEEDS to change, not only for you and the kids but also for himself.

Send me an email throwing some available dates my way so we can catch up before Christmas! Might be a good idea if we do it without kids this time :-) In the meantime i'm always here if you need someone to talk to.

hi Tina
in addition to my other comment, good to hear that you have gone back to WW, that is an excellent loss, keep up the good work. you need to feel good about yourself then the rest gets a bit easier to cope with.
i too have returned to ww, not going all that good, but sticking with it.
